: that might make obama's trip a little awchward! [laughter] will obama's trip be a success? will he insult the palestinians by eating the israeli delicacy falafel or will he insult the israelis by eating the palestinan delicacy falafel? [laughter] here to discuss the chosen people is my chosen guest, please welcome israeli ambassador to the united states, michael oren. [cheers and applause] thank you so much. [cheers and applause] sit back down. okay. sir, -- [cheers and applause] -- good to see you again. good to see you. how is israel? >> it's great. terrific. >> stephen: chosen people still chosen? >> chosen people from the bible. those are the jews. we're the chosen ally of the united states, the ultimate ally in the united states in the middle east. there's one state there that is stable, democratic and totally pro-american. >> stephen: sir, you are preaching to the choir if synagogues had choirs do. they? >> some do. >> stephen: good. preach away. obama is coming whether you like it or not. and i know you don't like it. >> we're delighted. >> stephen: no you are not. what is the ulti

[laughter] and now, the greatest insult of all. >> obama will make his first trip to israel as president. >> the white house hasn't released details of his trip but israeli media says he's visiting this spring. >> stephen: oh, so now obama thinks he can wipe out his shameful record of never visiting israel by visiting israel. [laughter] it's a chonda! don't fall for it, my chosen brethren, my he-bros. [laughter] he doesn't get you. [cheers and applause] this man doesn't get it. israel is a divided country that feels beseiged by terrorists, and whose politics are increasingly dictated by a small, hard-right minority. obama can't relate to that! [laughter] and if you need more proof that the president is no friend of israel, just do the math: back in 2007, president bush supported israel with $2.3 billion in foreign military aid. this year, president obama wants to bring that down to just $3.1 billion. [laughter] i know, it looks like it's going up, but remember, in hebrew you read charts from right to left. [cheers and applause] all right? [cheers and applause] and
obama's trip to the region, including jordan, is hosting hundreds of thousands of refugees and highlighted the fact that the situation on the ground in syria is not getting better. there is no sign that it will get better. it does not seem the united states has a response to this ongoing challenge. guest: the united states has been the biggest donor in terms of humanitarian and financial aid to the syrian opposition. close to $500 million so far. also giving logistical and to indications training. we are told there is some training and intelligence being given to the militants, parts of the opposition. we need to understand what is going on in syria is looking like a civil war. a civil war between extremist islamic militant groups that are not real militias. there are something like 300 different militant groups. it is difficult to give direct aid. we do not know who they are. a lot of them a spouse al qaeda dogma. a lot of the one to impose algeria- sharia law. syria is a mosaic of different groups. there is a large christian community. they do not want to see sharia law i

says local reporters were skeptical about president obama's trip but watched him make a connection. >> he used all the tricks. he was so charm ing. he charmed all the israelis. >> reporter: he says he doesn't expect president obama back anytime soon unless there's a major breakthrough in israeli palestinian peace talks. >> this trip was the first foreign visit of the president's second term. >>> the family was crushed underneath the sign. >> something no one would ever expect at an airport. a 300-pound airport sign falls on them. >> many gathers south of rome hoping to catch another glimpse of a historic day for the pope. and why it was suddenly lights out tonight on the bay bridge! >> after a beautiful saturday, how about an encore for sunday? but there are changes ahead. ,,,,,,,,,,,, and his family -- at an ala airport. officials at the birmingham- >>> a 10-year-old boy dead after a flight information sign fell on him and his family at an alabama airport. the officials say his mother is in critical condition, and two of the boys' siblings are also hospitalized. upon the panel whi

. for more on president obama's trip, i am joined now by the former jordanian former minister, and i want to pick up where we left off. president obama went to israel with an 11% approval rating. during the charm offensive the past couple days, he has probably improved his standing amongst the israeli people. does that matter in terms of the peace process? pretty well ifid his objective was to have a charm offensive. i think he did pretty well in speaking to the israelis about their needs of security, particularly not just related to the peace process but iran as well. but i think there is a key phrase the president used, you must create the change that you want to see. i think that is a phrase that can be applied not just to the palestinians and the israelis but the u.s. itself. if the u.s. is not creating the change it wants to see, i am afraid the two parties on the messages,erful as the simply does not have the time or the will to do that in the short time that we have before the to- state solution dies. >> critics of president obama said he has given fantastic speeches, and we heard

obama, but succeed on the public part of the trip. it is two trips in one to israel. the public part, you'd be hard- pressed to find a ford minivan'' worth of israelis that are anti- american. they want to like an american president. whatever their differences, for the most part, every stop along the visit is designed, choreographed to touch deeper chords in israeli society, whether it is the shrine of the books, or the stop at hertzel's tomb, or talking to israeli kids about their future in the 21st century. these are things obama will do very well at. i think this trip -- i would be surprised if it is not a success. there'll be some pickups, -- some hiccups, but the big piece, the public part i think is going to be successful to the extent it can. the way i see it, some say obama is just checking a box. i think he sees that the way towards managing his relationship with the israeli government runs through the israeli public. it does not mean that netanyahu is completely poll focused. i think the issue of iran as a gut issue for netanyahu. it is not just looking at public opinion. c
